Kendal Rugby Club have produced their own line of spirits.

Partnering with spirit specialists Distillers Kitchen, the rugby club have created their own brand of gin and vodka.

The two drinks have been named K-Gin and K-Vodka.

Both drinks have been themed as Northern Stronghold Spirits.

Following the start of a second lockdown, the rugby club wanted to bring a bit of Christmas cheer for their fans and raise some much-needed funds for the club.

Steve Green, Chairman of Kendal Rugby explained: “Everyone knows that local sports clubs are under pressure.

We hope our members and supporters will get behind the idea and join us for a tipple at home cheering on the Autumn international matches, as well as celebrating Christmas with a Kendal spirit.

It’s a fun idea, that looks and tastes great too”.

The K-Vodka carries the club’s logo, whilst the K-Gin features Kendal’s very own Samuel Airey Martindale

Martindale played for Kendal and gained representative honours with the County, England in 1929 (player 650) and the British Lions (player 260) on the New Zealand and Australian tour of 1930.

Matt Payne from Distillers Kitchen added: “I really like the way Kendal created the ‘K’ brand.

“It is also great to see a nod to the history of the club with a dedicated Gin to club and local legend Sam Martindale.

“I’m sure not just the club but the community as a whole will rally and support K-Vodka and K-Gin (while drinking responsibly of course!)”

Distillers Kitchen is the brainchild of world-renowned distiller Jamie Baxter and was initially set up to build distilleries and create recipes for some of the UK’s leading craft spirits labels.

With a reputation for delivering exceptional spirits Distillers Kitchen were approached by corporates, charities, and celebrities to create blends of gin, vodka, and rum.

Whilst building the Tuilagi Gin brand for rugby superstar Manu Tuilagi, they developed and refined a unique proposition to produce spirits on demand for sports clubs.

Kendal Rugby Club K-Gin and K-Vodka are available to the public, but only available to order online through the Distillers Kitchen website: and use the search feature to find ‘Kendal’.
